the region and with the world as china looks at, a sense of harmony, japan would be law, that sense of harmony and how you would achieve it is that their frustration is that the work is not just acquiescing to the notion that they are a rich country, that they are returning, that they're powerful, that they want respect. and they want to see the world kind of step back and give it greater latitude, but doesn't see this. this is what i think whether i personally think we are on a collision course. because when you look at what china's expectations of the world are, you also look at its paranoia, you look at jim, i'd love to hear utah, you're such an expert insider, what's going on in the cyber world. you see something which seems hard to me, despite her best efforts in not one to replace history, that the rise of a great power usually and often leads to messiness. usually and often leads to conflict. let's get some conversation from those of you who are thinking sisley that this is supposed to be a no-nonsense forum on military and secret strategy. i don't want you to predict war, bu
on the bill they just debated, changing federal energy efficiency laws. we'll take you live next to the capital, the chair and co-chair of the democratic caucus, just starting a briefing talking about the fiscal cliff and jobs. it's live here on c-span. >> and continues to preach the kind of message that i think the nation needs, one of compromise but one of assurity that we are going to be looking out tore the interest of the middle class and the protection of social security, medicare and medicaid for the people who are in such desperate need of those great programs that are the hallmark of our country. we have repeatedly said and our caucus again just confirmed that job creation equals deficit reduction, and we must put the country back to work. we have proposals that are on the floor. we still believe that even with the -- what little time remains and what little time remains when we're actually working, this is still possible. this is still doable. this is not a democrat or republican issue. republicans believe that america needs to go back to work. it's just a matter of hav
for a look at who is talking. a big talker this morning gun laws. the murder suicide by kansas city linebacker javon belcher sparking a much heated debate across the country. many saying this is more proof stricter gun laws are needed in this country. last night on "hannity". >> somebody hell bent on killing somebody o.j. simpson liable in the civil cates in the death of nicole brown. there was no gun used. if somebody is hell bent on killing somebody they don't need a gun to do it. >> i anticipate you using the simpson case. shame on you. bob costas is an award journalist. he doesn't need any type of platform. he has credibility. he gave social commentary. >> you don't need a gun to kill somebody. >> gun control is an issue where guns are in the hands of people in the urban community. >> nicole brown simpson killed with a gun or a knife? >> this is not about simpson it's about the social commentary about the proliferation of guns. >> you want to take away my second amendment right. do you want to take away people's second amendment right? >> gle but i want restrictions on guns. any
on taxes, anything that sounds like they will be rewarded for breaking the law and they will get an easy past is considered amnesty. jon: ronald reagan did it, didn't he? >> yes. republicans are a natural homss, they believe, for latinos. they are the party of opportunity, and hard work, of entrepreneurs and they are pro family. they have to start to speak about these issues where it doesn't sound like they are breaking up families. the republicans are trying to promote for science, technology and engineering and math, whether it's a high skilled visa or a low skilled advice a whether it's farm workers, domestic workers who clean hotepal this is all immigrant labor, and this apalo has an economic component in addition to the fact that many of their churches are telling them we can no longer side with this anti-immigration position. so it is changing out from under them and i think they are going to look for a way that they can change policy without a political backlash. joons we will be talking more about the upcoming elections a little bit later in the hour. a.b. stoddard, thank you. >>
the irs is about to hit millions of americans with new taxes to pay for the health care law. the new taxes hit certain people's investment income, capital gains and dividends, and they also impose a new income tax separate and apart from the one you already pay. joining me now, the president of the american commitment, and he's been joining us on the health care law for months now. phil, this is very interesting because we had the supreme court rule that obamacare was a tax, and there was a debate about whether it really did impose new taxes or not. it's very clear the so-called rich in this country, people who makeover $250,000 as a family or $200,000 as individuals, are going to have their investment income hiked irrespective of any fiscal cliff talk. this is all thanks to obamacare? >> yeah, that's exactly right, megyn. there was a surtax in the health care law, supposedly to pay for medicare, but they raised it -- they raided the money out of medicare before it even arrived to pay for the new obamacare spending. it's 0.9% additional medicare tax on wages of high income earners, and it
a good thing. some of the deductions, raise the law right under 250 and i would be fine with that. until people are willing to get serious and say these are the specific deductions we're talking about and willing to look at the consequences it's hard to take any seriously. >> we were talking during the break about specifics and how terrifying it is for the republicans to get into specifics because as rez ra outlines the patient convulses as it were. where is the hope in all this that a deal will get done? >> i don't think anybody wants to go over the cliff at the end of the day. we now have a really big round number from john boehner but nothing specific within it and as we went through and broke down this various deductions and loopholes many are popular, many of them make an enormous amount of sense and most of them benefit the middle class, not just the rich. i don't know where this -- where that part of the discussion goes because you're talking about unicorns earlier. they're imaginary beasts and this $800 billion through loopholes and deduction is about as real as a unicorn. >> i w
away from the fred finch youth center last tuesday. federal law prevents staff members from stopping her. however they did follow her until she got in the area of the fruitvale bart station. that's where she disappeared she wasn't seen again for two days when a drive found her aboard a bun in san francisco. >> the bus driver had noticed that she had been beaten and was concerned about her. he could see that she was bruised and distraught and so he called 911. >> the suspect was arrested and could be charged today. >>> a search is on for a man who police say robbed a walgreens in palo alto. a surveillance camera captured images of the suspect here. police say he asked fortunate oxycontin and showed a pharmacist that he had a gun inside his back. the suspect is a white man in his 20s 6 feet tall short hair a white hat with a seattle seahawks logo on it. >>> the former head of contra costa county's narcotics unit will plead guilty this week to charges that he took confiscated drugs and ordered to resell them. norman welsh indicted last year with four other cops and a private investigato
the state of wisconsin, also pat houston, whitney houston's sister-in-law and manager and jeopardy champion ken jennings written a new book. it's tuesday, december 4th, "starting point" begins right now. >>> welcome everybody, you're watching "starting point." we're honored this morning to have the former british prime minister tony blair with us as our guest. he's going to be weighing in as a number of topics. we're going to talk about the fiscal cliff, we're going to talk about the global economy. we're going to talk about the civil war in syria. we'll talk about the royal baby coming soon. first we want to get right to zoraida sambolin for an update on the day's top stories. >> soledad, the fiscal cliff debacle, with 28 days remaining before drastic tax hikes and spending cuts take effect, a republican spending plan has been rejected by the white house. brianna keilar is live from washington. what now, brianna? >> well, right now it's about the pressure building and the clock kicking, zoraida. as house republicans in the white house try to ultimately broker a deal between two very differ
four weeks to go until the deadline. be careful what you say in a local police want a law, new law requiring that text messages be saved for two years. how do you feel about that? ever texted something you wish would go away right now? there is of course the privacy issue as well. well, here comes the judge. he will be new at 10 on this one. got it. shares of darden restaurants, they're down today and they're the company that runs olive garden, red lobster, and they're down a lot. why is that, nicole? >> this is not good news here, they did a ton of promotions and now they're saying the promotions didn't work and in turn they're expecting numbers for the earnings season that will be below the analyst expectations and they're expecting sales at the olive garden to be down 3.2%. and at red lobster, 2.7% so sales are weakening, the earnings per share below what they anticipated and so, now, the ceo, so interesting, we need to come up with a new plan and we are going to work on different promotion because the current quarter is disappointing. do you think? >> well, nicole, hold on a se
conservatives quit the deportation law and order harshness. then i think having put that aside, having shown there's some compassion i think you can go back to that group, george w. bush got 40%, jeb bush got close to 50%, governor perry gets a high amount. it can to be done, star. >> i'm not saying it can't to be done but you can't say that even under george bush the policy was very different within the republican party when it looked at immigration in shutting the borders. has it intensified? yes. i'm from california. i understand what you're talking about. this is v-very difficult rhetoric that's been put against this particular people. but that's not the only question when we're talking about the latino community. >> star parker, thank you. i want to talk to you some more. we'll go back to the fiscal cliff. if high end tax rates are successful entrepreneurs rocket higher, you can bet the number of millionaires in this country is going south. that's if high taxes go up. millionaires go down. that's no good. in our land of opportunity, i want more millionaires. and i think the better for t
. but at the same time, richard, boehner seems to be laying down the law with this house republican caucus. he stripped four house members of committee seats, presumably because they bucked the party on key votes. three of those congressional members were elected during the tea party victory in 2010. >> yeah, look, reverend, it's not his legacy on the line here. it's his job on the line here. one of the problems he's had all the way through is he's had eric cantor hyped hbehind him poised challenge him for the leadership. he has to play a difficult game here where he has to assert his leadership, not expose himself too much to that challenge. that makes actually negotiating with him extremely difficult. republicans have to decide who they are, what they stand for, other than opposing everything that the president does, other than supporting every single tax cut that anyone could ever support. that's easy, right? now that they've lost, they have to decide who they are. and in the house they have to decide which leader they want. is this john boehner's caucus? is it eric cantor's caucus? negotia
'm a sportsman. i have firearms. i hunt deer and pheasants and all that kind of stuff. you want law-abiding citizens to give up their rights to own firearms at this point? that's a fair question. >> it is a fair question. and i take every opportunity to emphasize. i'm glad you asked it again. absolutely not. >> well then you have a law-abiding citizen who happened to be an nfl player who gets a great deal of visibility because of this tragic incident. should he have not been able to own a firearm? >> the 2nd amendment has been decided by the sue -- supreme court. it's within his right to own a firearm. he should have been aware of the risks associated with it. i think there's an education job we need to do there. we need to have an honest conversation about the risks and dangers associated with firearms. and we need to do what we can from a policy perspective to keep the guns out of the hands of people that are known dangerous. i mean, you have 40% of all gun sales in this country don't go through a background check. there are things we can do like background checks to keep guns you
in britain have been pushing through a law that would make it legal for -- if the first born of wills and kate is a girl for her to automatically become queen. the complication is, that law hasn't gone through yet. and it has to go through before she is born, if she's a girl. i'm guessing william and kate probably know the sex of the baby. uding the fact th preferred risk policy starts as low as $129 a year. for an agent, call the number that appears on your screen. >>> tomorrow on the show, two of the men at the center of the fiscal cliff negotiations, tom cole of oklahoma and the man behind the anti-tax pledge, grover norquist will both be "outfront." the new film called zero dark 30 based often the raid that killed osama bin ladin and some charge the obama administration gave the producers certain access. thanks for joining us. take tylenol or take aleve, the #1 recommended pain reliever by orthopedic doctors. just two aleve can keep pain away all day. back to the news. military families face, we understand. at usaa, we know military life is different. we've been there. that's why

. parliamentarans in britain are pushing for a law that would make it legal for the firstborn of wills and kate here is a girl, for her to automatically become queen. the complication is, that law hasn't gone through yet. it has to go through before she is born if she's a girl. now, i'm guessing that william and kate probably know the sex of the baby so they probably -- >> you think this early on? not even 12 weeks, they may not know it. also, there are many people who say this kind of morning sickness, severe morning sickness, is correlated with twins. what happens in the royal hierarchy if it's twins? >> that's where it gets really, really good fun, because obviously you could then have a girl and a boy nestling inside the womb and the first one out becomes king or queen. imagine that race. i've been involved in sibling rivalries, soledad, but imagine that. imagine if you were five seconds ahead of your brother or sister, you got to be the monarch of the british royal family. >> i have a set of twins, neither one of them's up to be the monarch of anything and they fight for stuff constantly. so i
and parliamentarians in britain have been pushing through a law that would make it legal for -- if the first born of wills and kate is a girl for her to automatically become queen. the complication is, that law hasn't gone through yet. and it has to go through before she is born, if she's a girl. i'm guessing william and kate probably know the sex of the baby. >> this early on? at 12 weeks? there are other people that say this kind of morning sickness is correlated with twins. what happens if it's twins? >> that's when it's gets really confusing. you could have a girl and a boy nestling inside the womb and the first one out becomes king or queen. i've been involved in sibling rivalry, imagine that, if you were five seconds ahead of your brother or sister, you have to be the monarch of the british royal family. >> i have a set of twins, neither one of them is up to be the monarch of anything. they fight for stuff constantly. diana's got to be a name. everyone's got to assume that would be one. you already mentioned piers. any other suggestions of names that would be up there? i'm sure people will
benefits you get after the health care law. open enrollment ends december 7th. so now's the time. visit medicare.gov or call 1-800-medicare. so now's the time. music is a universal language. but when i was in an accident... i was worried the health care system spoke a language all its own with unitedhealthcare, i got help that fit my life. information on my phone. connection to doctors who get where i'm from. and tools to estimate what my care may cost. so i never missed a beat. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. >>> we should not be sitting around twiddling our thumbs. the clock is running. we face a fiscal cliff. there are some in this chamber who have said, oh, we need to go off of it. we'll go off of it. we'll pay the price and then we'll finally sit down and do what's right. i would, with all due respect, say that's pretty stupid. >> that was some blunt talk from my next guest, republican senator from georgia, johnny isaacson. that was two and a half weeks ago. the more things change, the more th

that i still don't have it. if it's in mr. crump's hands, he should turn it over to law enforcement. if not, he should be subpoenaed to turn it over. that is crucial evidence. i deserve it and my client deserves it. >> let me come back one last point about that new hd version of the photo we've seen. mr. crump, martin family attorney, says he's still waiting for the x-ray of george zimmerman's nose to determine whether it was actually broken. what can you tell us about that and when will it be ready? >> well, mr. crump knows because he saw the medical records before i did, since they were forwarded to him from the state attorney's office, there are no x-rays because mrs. zimmerman when he went to the doctor the next day, he really went to be cleared for work. they suggested he get some x-rays and he didn't do it. obviously in retrospect, now that this is an issue, i wish we had x-rays. however, now that we have that picture, i'll let the judge decide, i'll let a jury decide as to whether or not that, in george's mind, was great bodily injury and of course we have the hits to the bac
the phrase gun control, you heard him, or add voe indicated any change in law on his nbc football show. that is not what he just heard. and every word that mike huckabee and herman cain didn't like was actually written by, as bob costas notes, fox sports columnist jason whitlock. when you read the environmental tire tea of jason's piece, which is the first article that i've read about football this year, you can be see that bob costas chose to quote it carefully, specifically leaving out the part on his show the part where jason whitlock does get political and eloquently so here's part of what he did not read in that article. we've come to accept our insanity. we'd prefer to avoid seriously reflecting upon the absurdity of the prevailing notion that the second amendment somehow enhances our liberty rather than threatens it. how many young people have to die senselessly, how many lives have to be ruined before we realize that the right to bear arms doesn't protect us from a government equipped with stealth bombers, predator drones, tank, and nuclear weapons? i, for one, played enough fo
and disabled, rights that have been the law of the land here in the united states since 1990. despite an emotional appearance from bob dole just out of walter reed, 89 years old, a passionate advocate for equal rights for the disabled since his first speech on the senate floor in 1969. joining me for our daily fix, kra, managing editor of post politics.com and capitol hill correspondents, nbc's kelly o'donnell and luke russert. kelly, to you, because this vote in the senate, john kerry led the way, it was bipartisan, in support. they needed 6 votes. it's a treaty, two-thirds of the senate and it failed. talk to me about all the ramifications here. >> it's not that often andrea, you know this, when votes on the senate floor can draw such powerful emotions and even tears from members of the gallery who attend in the public seats that are not in camera view. but we had that today. there was strong, passionate feelings about this for those in support of the treaty, which essentially as they describe it would encourage the world to live up to the same standard that the u.s. has had these p
this -- there are so many ties to the university of chicago. obama was a lecturer at the law school. mrs. obama was an executive there. the daughters went to the school. close friend of the couple was the chairman of the board. we could go on and on and on. even susan is an executive there now. and their donor community, some of them are on or have been on the board and their house is near campus. >> bill: it is a great university. >> david axelrod is launching his own institute of politics there formerly opens in january. so it would seem that if there's going to be -- if you're going to put it anywhere, this is the most logical place to put it. but obama also told jonathan alter in his book on the first year that he was even thinking of maybe a virtual library but there's going to be a brick and mortar place someplace. it may not be the scale of the kennedy library or clinton but it is interesting that now we know the timetable. we know the unveiling. this breaks out in the open more. i bet obama will not look forward
know, howard baker was everett dirkson's son-in-law. and during the run up to the civil rights bill, howard is sitting up in dirkson's office, phone rings, dirkson picks it up, says -- and all howard can say is him saying, mr. president, i just can't come down tonight, i was there last night. i was there the night before, i just got to go home. hangs up. 20 minutes passed, and he hears beagles barking in the hallway outside his office. and lbj walks in with his dogs. so because he wouldn't come down to see him, johnson called a car, got in and came up to just force a conversation with dirkson. >> and lyndon johnson -- >> and we got a bill. >> and by the way, l lyndon johnson. he's so detached and disconnected from the hill, he would call, mark haleprin, famously, subcommittee chairman in the house. and say, hey, i hear the mark-up didn't go very well today. do you need any help? what can i do? do you need me to call anybody? how can i push this along? again, we're not heaping all the blame on the president. let me underline again. >> yeah. >> john boehner's counter offer was patheti
